Hey Gang! You gotta check out this out! It's footage from a live-action film currently in production in Japan called Space Battleship Yamato. The film is based on a classic 1970's anime series of the same name, which I used to watch as a kid growing up. I loved the huge space battleships in this series, and now to see them brought to life I can't help but get excited. This speaks to the kid in me. The film looks pretty freakin awesome, and it's being directed by Takashi Yamazaki, who also directed the film, Always - Sunset on Third Street parts 1 and 2.
Here is a little story info:
Set in 2220, the pic will depict the evacuation of 300 million people from Earth to avoid certain death from an expanding black hole. The Yamato, a space battleship, is leading the rescue fleet when it is attacked by an alien force.
This film looks absolutely awesome, there's no doubt it looks good, I just hope the story is just as strong as the visuals. A seriously can't wait to see this movie. Check out the trailer below and please tell us what you think!
